My mission is to get people to eat less meat and other animal products. But instead of bothering you with (good) reasons to stop, I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s not really about skipping meat at all. It’s about eating all the delicious other things you probably never bothered to look at.
My name is Sjoerd, but you can call me Sam
I’m a journalist from Amsterdam. I wrote about just about everything ranging from terrorism in Europe, to Britney Spears to the economy. I also give creative writing classes and helped create the wonderful cookbook Vegadutchie by Jolijn Pelgrum which, unfortunately, is only available in Dutch.
Now it’s time to make my own recipes. I decided to focus on people like me. Men. There are plenty of (excellent) vegan blogs out there, but I noticed most of them are run by women and target mainly women. You won’t find any cupcake recipes on my blog. What you will find are burgers, recipes with beer, chili, big servings and news updates about food, climate and related matters. Of course women are more than welcome to continue reading…
Love and health
It was love for a girl that inspired me to stop eating meat. Love for all animals to rule out fish as well. And love for the planet to make me eventually go vegan. But first and foremost, I have always loved eating. A lot. That’s why I try to make my recipes as healthy as possible. That means I don’t use refined sugar and try to limit the use of salt and oil. You’ll see canned products in my ingredient lists, but I encourage you to use fresh produce whenever possible. More info on this coming soon on my I wanna know more page.
